“The truth is, one who seeks to achieve freedom by petitioning those in power to give it to him has already failed, regardless of the response.

Larken Rose
“Property taxes' rank right up there with 'income taxes' in terms of immorality and destructiveness. Where 'income taxes' are simply slavery using different words, 'property taxes' are just a Mafia turf racket using different words. For the former, if you earn a living on the gang's turf, they extort you. For the latter, if you own property in their territory, they extort you. The fact that most people still imagine both to be legitimate and acceptable shows just how powerful authoritarian indoctrination is. Meanwhile, even a brief objective examination of the concepts should make anyone see the lunacy of it. 'Wait, so every time I produce anything or trade with anyone, I have to give a cut to the local crime lord??' 'Wait, so I have to keep paying every year, for the privilege of keeping the property I already finished paying for??' And not only do most people not make such obvious observations, but if they hear someone else pointing out such things, the well-trained Stockholm Syndrome slaves usually make arguments condoning their own victimization. Thus is the power of the mind control that comes from repeated exposure to BS political mythology and propaganda.”
Larken Rose

“It was a monumental achievement that the serpentine tc'a had once upon a time gotten the knnn to understand the concept of trade: so nowadays knnn simply contacted a station, rushed onto its methane-dock and deposited whatever they liked, grabbed whatever they wanted and left. This was an improvement over their former behavior, in which they simply looted and left.”

“The truth about the slave trade from Africa to America. During battles between African tribes, the winners of those battles would take a few of the enemy as slaves for themselves and kill the remaining tribe. Once they discovered that they could trade their foes to other countries for foods and supplies, they stopped killing the rest of the tribe they did not want and traded them to ship merchants for sugar, rum, and other products and supplies who then sold the slaves in various countries including America. So, as you can see, slavery, as horrible as it is, did save lives but only long enough for them to meet death in a different way and in a different land.”
James Thomas Kesterson Jr
